The range of human activity directly or indirectly involved in addressing issues related to food safety has considerably expanded in the last decade. In the past, the focus in food safety lay on quality control measures implemented to ensure productive processes met performance criteria. Nowadays, however, a narrow understanding of the issues surrounding food safety will compromise our ability to fully mobilize the potential of new digital and AI technologies.
Artificial intelligence methods are now seeping into healthcare, medicine, agriculture and food sectors. Keeping the buzz aside, such methods are increasingly efficient at addressing a task at hand. The area of food safety is not unknown to these technological developments in big data and contemporary machine learning methods. For example, use of AI as part of analytical measurement procedures, internet of things (IoT) enabled analytical devices, use of predictive analytics algorithms for crunching large data sets, to list a few.
